It's been such a long time since I've put together one of these posts, but I find they are the perfect way to do a little bit of writing and share a bit of what's happening when time is in short supply. So this week, while I'm taking final exams, I'm sharing a roundup of a few of the best recipes that I've been cooking lately.
This fragrant West Sumatran curry is time-consuming and uses a lot of ingredients. But the end result is worth it - Beef Rendang from The Domestic Man.
In contrast, this dish comes together quickly, particularly when you're lazy like me and just throw everything into the slow cooker -- Lebanese Lemon Chicken from A Calculated Whisk.
I love ordering vegetarian dishes when we go out for Indian food, and this at-home attempt was definitely a success -- Saag Paneer from 101 Cookbooks.
We hosted a meeting of our local wine club last week and the theme was Spanish wine and tapas. You can't have a tapas party without at least attempting a tortilla Espanola, plus the leftovers are even better the next day -- Spanish Potato Tortilla by El Invitado del Invierno.
And finally, in a pre-finals week treat-yourself moment, I made a pan of these blondies. Do yourself a favor and give them a try this week if you too need a little indulgent pick-me-up -- Olive Oil Blondies by A Calculated Whisk.
